I've just purchased a Creative Soundblaster 5.1 Live. and I need to purchase speakers for it. Does anyone have any ideas what sort of speakers will I need. I belive that it takes 3 types of speakers, Front, rear and centre. What sort of speakers will I need for each of these? If possible if you could send me the link from ebuyer I would be greatfull.
I am using the same sound card, and the speakers I use are the Creative Inspire 6.1 6700, purchased from Argos priced £99.99. A friend who also has the same sound card uses the Creative Inspire 5.1 5100 speakers priced at £69.99. It all depends on how much you want to spend? You could go for a basic set and adjust your sound card settings to suite e.g 4.1. I must admit that the sound quality from both of the above systems is superb.
If you are short on cash you could get 2 sets of 2 speakers as the card also has 4 speaker out sockets for analouge. There are 2 speaker out Jack plugs. One for the front and one for the back sets of speakers.
I have the same sound card as you and I use the NISIS S7 system, they are loud and give good quality. They cost me 100 quid about 9 months ago, and are still performing sound as good as ever. Whatever you get make sure it suits you're needs.
